REINVENTING AN ICON
Retail card of a Cadenas watch, from Van Cleef & Arpels’ 1939 archives It’s been 80 years since its inception, but Van Cleef & Arpels’ Cadenas remains as one of the most iconic timepieces, and with good reason. Inspired by the Duchess of Windsor,
the watch features an angled dial and double snake chain bracelet, but this year’s update gives it contemporary
pizzazz. Retaining its original design, the dial gains increased visibility, thanks
to enlarged dimensions of its 12 hour markers. The timepiece is also adorned in sumptuous diamonds, serti neige style.
